Christmas Ornaments

August 28, 2018

Hi Everyone!  It’s Karen here.  I’m absolutely loving the new release from Joset Designs!  Today, I’m doing some cards that would be great for making as multiples because they are so easy!  I used the new Winter Ornaments dies along with Silk Microfine Glitter in two colors.

Here are the steps to replicate the cards:

Step 1. From 85lb White Soft Finish Cardstock, cut a rectangle measuring 4-1/4″ x 11″; score at 5.5″ and fold in half to create a top-fold card base.

Step 2. Die cut the outline ornament (simple shape) from 85lb White Soft Finish Cardstock covered with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the top/front.  (Tip: I cut a piece of Soft Finish Cardstock into four pieces and cover using the 4″ roll, so I always have some on hand.)

Step 3.  Die cut the detail ornament from silver metallic paper.  To make adding this to the ornaments easier, cover the back with Clear Double Sided Adhesive prior to die cutting.  Adhere the detail ornament to the outline ornament.

Step 4. Remove the release sheet from the ornaments and cover with Silk Microfine Glitter.  The green is Sea Glass and the pink is Petal Pink from the “Bloom” Glitter Palette. Polish the glitter with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle. Adhere the detailed silver overlay to the glittered ornaments. Tie a double loop of white baker’s twine to the to of the ornaments.

Step 5.  Cut a piece of 85 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock at 2-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.  Cut a piece of patterned paper from the Unconventional Christmas 12×12 collection at 3-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.

Step 6.  Adhere the patterned paper to the cardstock and then die cut a card front with the 2nd largest size of the Dashing Rectangles die.

Step 7.  Using black ink, stamp a sentiment toward the side of the white cardstock using the Classic Christmas Sentiments Clear Stamps. Refer to project photos for placement.

Step 8. Wrap white baker’s twine around the card front two or three times, and then adhere the panel to the card base.

Step 9.  Adhere the ornament to the side of the card front.

Step 10.  Add a couple of Nuvo Drops to the card.

Craftily yours,

Karen
